Liverpool welcome the German outfit Augsburg to Anfield on Thursday night in the second leg of their Europa League round-of-32 tie.

Sitting alongside Daniel Sturridge at Melwood, Jurgen Klopp told reporters that the England striker would likely be joined by Philippe Coutinho in a starting role in order to find a “rhythm.”

Joe Allen also hurt his hamstring during the first half of the eventful meeting with Sunderland. Adam Lallana is still out with a calf injury, while young midfielder Kevin Stewart, who signed a contract extension earlier this week, will be sidelined for the foreseeable future after damaging his ankle while blocking a shot during training.

Slovakian international captain Martin Skrtel, who has not featured since December due to hamstring and calf injuries, was also involved in the session – the first 15 minutes of which was open to the media.

Danny Ings (ACL Knee Injury), Joe Gomez (ACL Knee Injury) and Jordan Rossiter (Hamstring Injury) remain on the sidelines along with Dejan Lovren who misses due to illness.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Clyne, Toure, Sakho, Moreno, Can, Milner, Henderson, Firmino, Coutinho, Sturridge, Ward, Randall, Caulker, Lovren, Lucas, Ibe, Teixeira, Benteke, Origi.

The Reds have only lost three home games all season and should have enough to overcome Augsburg over 90 minutes, but after failing to get an away goal in the first-leg, Klopp may be forced to go with his strongest lineup: Mignolet, Moreno, Sakho, Toure, Clyne, Can, Henderson, Milner, Coutinho, Firmino, Sturridge.

The site started in October 2009 to a very small audience, then during the 2010 World Cup and the great twitter boom of 2010 things started to pick up pace. There is no real agenda to the site, would like to think it covers a wide range of subject and talking points
